We got the masonite floor back somehow... (Helen 10/30/11)
I'm working on a new physical model again, here's the updated computer rendering:

In budget for real this time!!! (Helen 10/25/11)
Rendered the pool to be more dirty, like not taken care of, as opposed to really distressed. More to do.
Here's my updated model:

This first one seems like a great model for us. I like them all though. KB

Some images of pool tiles...some solutions to our budget "no-pass" (HELEN 9/30):

>>>Some photoshopped renderings to come. It looks like people are doing just about any border thickness, there's one that looks like not even 10" and the first pool tile border looks about 2'-6". All the ones I found just happen to be blue, but we can play with a different color. If we only do a border in a manageable size, then my wish is for it to be routed, but not if that brings the price back up obviously.

I like all the furniture you have below. I really like the last patio furniture 9 and 10, cause it's only vaguely patio furniture, but still is, and it also looks like a therapists chairs — and everything in between seems good too.

SET FURNITURE for seating and the "Shrine that we're not calling a shrine" (Helen)
Katie please let me know what you think. (When referring to images, note that the #s are at the bottom left of each image).

Pool Inspiration for current design (Helen 9/9):
These are really nice — especially the color in the blue/grey one, and the plant shadow in the other.

These two are too public pool:

I love these images. I'm not sure they're in line with the aesthetic we're going for — too clean and generic

Strong contenders (KB - 9/4/11):


SAUNA: Claustrophobic, hazy, decadent, naked, and a place for conversation around a sort of hearth (the hot stones). I also like it because it's naturally a box.

ABANDONED POOL: Overgrown and swampy, the extension of a luxurious house, bright and exposed. Vast space leaves room for flexibility in rehearsal — i.e. the staging would have to imply the inside, outside, etc.; could be more fun than a confined space.

BLOWN-OUT MOTEL: It's a really pathetic palace that Violet can't keep up, elements of a home, but with plants growing. Also, it looks like it was ravaged and then went to seed.
(This is the same motel as "God please fuck my mind for good.")

PHOTOGRAPHY STUDIO: This could be a great way focus in on the speaker and move the playing space around. It also deals directly with the early photography we've been collecting, and at the same time is explicitly contemporary.

Garden surrounding a "dock" like patio. Stage isolated by the lower level of discarded plants.

Garden beds (repeated):

Iconic red roses and people...so precious/beautiful/expensive, covering the floor to be walked on (wasted).

Mccarren Pool, Brooklyn NY. No longer a usable swimming pool, now used for outdoor concerts where standing audience fill the pool area:

Scene from The Royal Tenenbaums (movie), set in the 70s. It's much like a
Therapist/Patient set up where a patient is on a couch, vulnerable and open, essentially naked:

A tiered garden with seating. Reminds me of a sauna, where you're naked and the culture is to sit/lay/relax, and talk about issues:

An abandoned auditorium. My interest is in the opening for the lower level as a pit like element and also of course the plants vs architecture:
